Charlotte, NC, United States (July 8, 2008) - The software component TX Text Control is now shipping with Office Open XML (DOCX) support. Documents can be created, modified and converted to the latest MS Word format.

TX Text Control has been setting the standard in the software component industry for more than seventeen years. Today, The Imaging Source - the manufacturer of these word processing components - has just announced version 14.0 with many improvements and much technical innovation.

Demand from the component's customer base to add support for MS Word standard Office Open XML (DOCX) has been strong. The latest version of TX Text Control now offers this ISO ratified format as one of its many supported file formats. In addition to the new XML based MS Word format, legacy Word formats, such as Word 97 and 2003, Rich Text Format (RTF) and HTML are also supported. Furthermore, Adobe PDF documents can be created and saved.

TX Text Control .NET for Windows Forms 14 has been optimized for Visual Studio 2005 and 2008, supports the newest .NET framework 2.0 and 3.5 and ships in 64 bit and 32 bit versions for all current Windows editions.

After a long and highly successful development cycle, the heart of the word processing components now boasts a number of new features:

Document sections with various page formats and different headers and footers are supported. MS Word formatted documents and templates, which contain mail-merge fields can be created. All the typical fields of Microsoft's Office packet are now supported by TX Text Control as default.

The server functionality has also been extended to include the new MailMerge component, with which MS Word templates can be populated with data from a database. This allows print-ready documents to be created on the server. The server version of TX Text Control ships with a freely distributable template designer.

Customers of previous TX Text Control versions can update to the current version 14.0 for a special update price. Owners of a valid subscription license can update to the current version free of charge. For more information, see:
